 I checked on the two single-axis shakers that are present at the 40m that Steve pointed out:

  • Brüel & Kjær type 4809, rated for 45 N peak, and
  • Brüel & Kjær type 4810, rated for 10 N peak.

Neither of these meet the force requirement of 2.04 kN peak.

 Time to lower your expectations!

Do we really need 40 microns at 500 Hz? Or perhaps should there be a frequency dependent displacement requirement?
